“Friendliest Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

This hotel was not only one of the cleanest but had an excellent restaurant. ALL the staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough to help and included a shuttle service not only to and from the airport but to and from Rapid City itself which was about 5 miles away, they dropped you off in the town or attraction and you called them when you were ready to be picked up. Would definately recommend most highly.

Room Tip: You get the best offered and don't particularly need to ask for an upgrade

A nice Best Western and nice staff while checking in too. The Restaurant/Lounge/Internet was our reason for moving over from the Ramada Inn. The lounge is a local hot spot as well as the Steakhouse restaurant.
The room was comfortable and complete with all the amenities but you do have to request a microwave and fridge if you want them.
The hotel has a waterpark, liquor store and gift shop as well. Very comfortable, accomodating Value in that area. I would stay again without hesitation.

Great place to stay if you just need a room for the night. The hotel is sprawling, so prepare to walk around a bit to get to your room. Room was pretty clean.

Spent 6 nights and upgraded to a suite which was nice except.... No dishes, glasses, or utensils in the mini kitchen and a real hassle to get some. Even the general manager was unapologetic as she informed me that "we don't provide such because people don't ask". Well based other reviews, indeed we do ask. Besides that there Areca few morevthings that you may not like. 1). The workout room air conditioning had been broken " for a while" so it was over 90 degrees. 2) The pool had limited hours even though it was remotevfrom rooms and had no lifeguard and was secure. 3) the hotel is all spread out so if you have any health limitations around walking do not stay here! 4). The banquet food was abomidable!!! Worst I have ever had and totally overpriced!!! Do not recommend using this hotel fit business meetings.
On the positive side the hotel restaurant -Minerva- was good and the slides in the water park were fun even for a fifty something. There's wifi that's spotty but nice to have. Suites were a nice layout but no balcony and far away from the lobby and restaurant. Maid service very good. Two flat screen tvs in suite room.
Bottom line...Would suggest looking into the radisson right downtown as an alternative.

Room Tip: No elevators and spread out so choose carefully. Suites are comfy but no balcony.
